Action This Day (foaled February 18, 2001 in Kentucky) is a retired American Thoroughbred racehorse.

In 2003, after winning his maiden race September 28 at Santa Anita, he became the first maiden to win the Breeders' Cup Juvenile. After running last for most of the race, he came from off the pace in the homestretch and won by two lengths over Minister Eric. He was voted the U.S. Eclipse Award for Outstanding 2-Year-Old Male Horse.

Action This Day made his 2004 debut in the Sham Stakes February 8, finishing fourth. He then finished seventh in the San Felipe Stakes and sixth in the Blue Grass Stakes. Entered into the Kentucky Derby, he managed a sixth place finish in the field of 18.

Retired after the 2004 racing season, Action This Day entered stud at Castleton Farm in Lexington, Kentucky.
